About Jalessa

I am a working professional in the Criminal Justice Field. I have an extensive background in Criminal Justice, including an advanced degree in Crime Scene Investigation. I have access to a lot of references and resources that can be helpful. In addition to my professional and academic background in the field, somehow the television shows I watch reflect that. No, I don't watch CSI; I've never watched a single episode. However, I am intrigued by Law & Order SVU, which originally piqued my interest, Criminal Minds, Numb3rs, which puts a weird spin on things, Dexter, and as of late, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder, which both have awesome story lines and great use of investigations. Just my humble opinion. Criminal justice is my passion, and I plan to pass on my information to anyone interested in such a diverse field.

I minored in Urban Studies, which was strongly sociology based, and I have a wee bit of knowledge in psychology, both of which I knew would help me in my future studies and life choices.

Aside from just overall being overcome with joy from things that spark my investigative flame, I have a background in college admissions. During my undergraduate and graduate studies, I worked in Admissions, both on the undergrad and graduate level. I have personally helped several friends with college admission essays, personal statements, and the like. I have a underlying passion for helping people draft a document that can form their future. I don't mind researching programs based on interests, nor creating program guides and schedules based on such interests. I know some school counselors may be overwhelmed with their workload and unable to open provide need based counseling, however, I can provide individual attention for each person.

I want to tutor in admissions guidance because when I was in high school, my college journey was pretty much an independent study with the minor help from my school counselors like sending in fee waivers and letters of recommendation.
I really look forward to helping in anyway that I can.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

College Counseling

I have four years experience in college admissions, both part time and full time. I genuinely have interest in helping students making the right choice when it comes to furthering their education and developing their futures. I've helped friends with college choices, personal statements, schedule building and course selection.

Criminal Justice

I am qualified to tutor criminal justice because I have a BA in Criminal Justice with a minor in Urban Studies. I also have a master's degree in Crime Scene investigation which consisted of several criminal law and procedure classes. I am currently a police officer and hope to bring that experience to my tutoring lessons.
